SPACEOVER .. Give your space a makeover..

5 Oct

A thought came to me the other day as I am looking for a new job at the mo. Grey plastic trays, dusty, broken keyboards and and stacks of paper threatening to topple over and drown you in a river of boring paperwork isn’t exactly a haven for inspiration or ingredients for a productive workflow is it ladies, can I get an amen! For me, organising and being happy with what the space around you looks like is almost, or just as important as working on what you look like. Whats around you gives you ideas, inspires and excites you and gives you the drive to work harder. 

With winter looming around the corner I love finding little things to do to keep you happy about having to be inside more! Whether it’s your office, homework/study desk, cubicle or inspiration station, it deserves a makeover too! And after much experience, being happy with where you work or go to come up with your next genius plan, makes all the difference. If a little something can make you smile while writing that 3000 word essay, whether it’s your new sparkly pen or spanking fresh note pad, its worth it am I right!? I know some of us might be restricted with what we’re allowed to do at work but even a revamp of your pen, mug, paperclip and coaster collection can work wonders! 

I am an absolute sucker for browsing the stationary/home decor isles of every shop going, and of course, my frenimy, pinterest! (frenemy because I love it but it makes me want to climb into one of my boards and live in my perfect pinterest world, it’s a love hate relationship!) Anyway I was browsing one of my absolute new fave shops, The Range, the other day and saw some gorgeous and reasonably priced little things that could transform a dull workplace into your personalised sanctuary of colour and happiness 😉

I hope you give this a try and get those creative juices flowing! let us know how you go! 

   
 
ideastage.com for these bad boys but I would try eBay and amazon too! 

  
I challenge anyone not to smile when they see glittery anything! These cute cup coasters are from ShopBop but looks like a fun DIY project too 🙂

  
Loads of mega cute ideas on here, the garland is from easy but again, get your DIY on! Having cute family pics up is a must for me, always a guaranteed smile 🙂

  
Have pictures of things that inspire you! If you want to travel the world or work internationally, have a picture of the world up to remind and inspire you to push harder, cute canvases of your fave quotes and fun cushions always brighten ones day too! 

Just remember.. Style extends to more than just fashion. When we make changes to our environment we can change our motivation, attitude and relationships. 

Have an amazeballs week. Love B xoxo

***Update, August 1: In response to the thousands of people who, after reading this entire post, decided to harp on one single phrase (“I’m no feminist”), I wrote this. If you want to know how I can say all the things I say here, yet still reject “feminism,” click the link and I’ll explain. Otherwise, carry on. Thanks for stopping by.

Our country dangles on the precipice of starting a third World War. We are on the verge of a completely unnecessary conflict where the United States will fight along side Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. This, in another day and age, might earn the crown as the Most Controversial Story of the Week. But we’re in the year 2013, and this is America, so a young pop star’s dance moves on an MTV awards show have predictably overshadowed the prospect of global chaos and bloodshed. I wrote…
